But if you believe that a child is a child from conception, as I do, then killing the child is wrong no matter the reason. No reason is better than the other, it is no more that child's fault that they are a result of rape than it is a child's fault that the mother wanted a boy instead of a girl. The mother's feelings are not a valid reason to kill an innocent child. A life is a life, and unless the woman's own life is in danger I will never agree that a woman's feelings or discomfort is a good enough reason for a baby to die. That child is the same to me as a child that has been born and taken a breath. They deserve the same protection.

It is an unfortunate consequence of rape.
